Brazil will have six representatives in the swimming finals this Thursday (2), starting at 5:00 am (GMT), at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo (Japan). And the Brazilians will have good chances for medals at the Aquatic Center, with highlights for Talisson Glock and Gabriel Araújo, who had the best times in their qualifying competitions.
Talisson made a time of 5min06s28 in the men’s 400 meters (m) freestyle class S6. His mark was so good that he is five seconds ahead of second-best in the qualifiers. Gabriel Araújo, who has already won gold and silver in Japan, did 1min01s63 in the men’s 50 m backstroke class S2.
In addition, Laila Abate goes to the final of the women’s 400 m freestyle class S6, with the seventh best time in the qualifiers. Ana Karolina de Oliveira achieved the fifth best mark in the women’s 100 m backstroke in the S14 class. Eric Tobeira goes to the final of the men’s 50 m freestyle class S4 with the eighth best time in the qualifiers. Besides them, Patrícia dos Santos is also going to the final. With 41s62, she scored the second best mark in the qualifiers of the women’s 50 m freestyle class S4.
The Brazilians Vanilton Filho, Gabriel Bandeira, Bruno Becker, Ronystony Silva and Susana Schnarndorf also competed for places in the finals. But none of them were among the eight best times in the qualifiers of their tests.
